I do love both Bourbon and Scotch.
Which whiskey is the Devils Whiskey?
Jim Beam Devil's Cut, Jenny (Johnnie) Walker, Queen Jennie or else?
Very interested.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki, Glad you liked it. Devils Whiskey was a nickname for illegal bootleg moonshine whiskey. Now there are some distillers making legal moonshine. It is clear, made from fermented corn and sugar and has quite a kick. Here's my bourbon recommendation-Elijah Craig. Thanks, Tom

Tom,

Thank you very much for detailed explanation about Devils Whiskey.
Now I understand well.
Your bourbon recommendation-Elijah Craig is imported and available in Japan now.
So, I would like to buy it and drink it immediately.
Thank you again.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Good song. Nice sound on that guitar. I like the crunchyness in the tone.

I just checked in and the accolades have already hit on your vocals/guitar, the write and the superb production...so DITTO!!!

We ain't gonna parse it out any further -- rather go back for another listen.

Album quality stuff you got going Mr. Adams!

We are deep down in the Keys with a bad case of keys disease and cell coverage is a little spotty. I'm having trouble listening to the posts but will give a a thorough run through when we get off island time. Thanks for the fine review and yes this one qualifies for Appalachian Honky Tonk. Tom

Tom, I am constantly amazed at the very high quality of work you present to this forum! In my opinion your work is at the very top level of what is posted here! In this track you did an excellent job of syncopation between the vocal and guitar, which really sets this song off. Everything is absolutely great! Thanks, Torrey.

As others have already noted, everything about this sits perfectly with everything else. The clarity of the mix is exceptionally good and your performance is up there with the best in the forum. floyd mentioned "star quality" and I want to add +1 to that!

Your choice of instruments is excellent and the groove you put together really engages the listener! Loved it!

All the best,
Noel
Hi Noel, Thanks so much for these great comments. I truly appreciate your insights. Tom

Great genre song!!!

Now, if you can just do me a triple time version of Jerry's Breakdown we can be real good friends.

David, I never thought of Jerry. He was one of my favorites and I agree with you that it is in that vein. Thanks for stopping by. Tom
